* Music/DavidBowie eventually gave up on AlterEgoActing once he realised that his final stage persona, the sinister [[NaziNobleman Thin White Duke]] from his album ''Music/StationToStation'', had become this. Bowie was getting LostInCharacter and losing his identity and grip on reality -- in no small part to all the cocaine he was doing at the time.

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}:
** In ''Comicbook/DemonSpawn'', Supergirl's dark side has spawned a pocket dimension which exists inside the mind of the eponymous heroine and is crawling with demons and evil creatures. One of those creatures -Nightflame, a humanoid swordswomen and sorcerer that is Supergirl's death wish's embodiment- tries to take over Kara's body.
** In her Post-Crisis ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 2005}} book]]'' Kara had an evil doppelganger for a short while until she reabsorbed it. Her evil side -dubbed by SG fans Dark Supergirl or Dark Kara- embodies all of Supergirl's repressed anger over the loss of her people, and later it resurfaces and takes over. Remarkably, Dark Supergirl is ''less'' evil during her reapparance. She is pretty much an angry jerkass.

** Raven suffers from this, being [[HalfHumanHybrid half-demon]]. She needs to regularly meditate and exercise strong emotional control to keep her powers in check. If she gets angry enough, her demon side physically manifests in ''four'' [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowing red eyes]], at which point you should probably just run.
